Always confusing!

I haven't personally seen one of these but Randy Newman's photo on MPG of Hodges #5592 Tallula watsoni was the only one I saw that had that widening of the PM line at the costa. Not an ID, just a suggestion of something to look at. Which one were you thinking?

 
Ann
Either T. atrifascialis or watsoni. I have both of them here but don't know how to tell them apart.

 
Well
I only checked the MPG pictures. I just checked the BG pictures of all Tallua. I did not find a picture of yours for watsoni, so I cannot check that, but I DID notice that the ID's picture of T. atrifascialis has a widened white of the PM line at the costa. That was the only differentiating marking that I could discern. It seems to be WAY beyond me!
